Title: The Effect of Diltiazem on Propranolol Absorption Using in situ Single Pass Intestinal Perfusion Technique in Rats. Introduction: Propranolol HCl is a synthetic non selective β-adrenergic receptor-blocking agent. Regarding its pharmacokinetic behavior propranolol HCl has almost complete and rapid absorption from gastrointestinal tract; however, its bioavailability is approximately 25% after oral administration. Propranolol HCl is a substrate for a distributed P-glycoprotein along intestine that can secrete it back into intestinal lumen. Aim: To investigate the influence of diltiazem HCl as P-glycoprotein (P-gp) inhibitor on the level of intestinal absorption of propranolol HCl, namely on absorption rate constant (ka). Methodology: Single Pass Intestinal Perfusion (SPIP) technique in rats was conducted on three groups of Wistar albino rats (n=6 per group). The first group was perfused with propranolol HCl (75 μg/mL) alone, while the second and the third group were perfused with propranolol HCl (75μg/m/) and diltiazem HCL (250 μg/mL) and (1000 μg/mL) respectively. Whole small intestinal segment of anaesthetized rats were cannulated and perfused by propranolol HCl in normal saline at 37 °C in absence and presence of diltiazem HCl in perfusion solution. Samples were obtained from outlet tubing at different time intervals, propranolol HCl remnant concentration assayed using UV-spectrophotometric method, and the absorption rate constant (ka) values of the drug were calculated. Results: The absorption rate constant (ka) value of propranolol HCL in the absence of diltiazem HCl was 0.810 ± 0.014 hr-1. The absorption rate constant ka values of propranolol HCL in the presence of diltiazem HCl (250 μg/mL and 1000 μg/mL) were 0.778 ± 0.012 hr-1 and 0.857±0.030 hr-1, respectively. No significant difference in ka values of propranolol HCl was observed when the drug has been co-perfused with P-gp inhibitor (diltiazem HCl) at two different concentrations level (P>0.05). IV Conclusion: The probable explanation for the null effect of P-gp inhibitor on propranolol ka is that P-gp plays a minimal role in the in situ intestinal absorption process of propranolol with high water solubility and high membrane permeability.
